Day One

So LFW kicked off today and I set myself up for the day with a hearty breakfast at the Covent Garden Hotel with Ruth Griffin of Matches, who had invited some London-based bloggers and online media types - Grazia, the Vogue blog, Mademoiselle Robot, Net A Porter, The Portmanteau, et al - to help celebrate the launch of the Matches pop up shop at Somerset House. Over Eggs Benedict, French toast, and porridge for the more abstemious, we discussed our schedules for the next four days and plotted to introduce a London version of the Fashion Bloggers’ Brunch. I only squeezed in two shows this evening and I still haven’t gotten around to getting glasses so I’m probably not the best person to rely on for in-depth analysis. But although things were blurry I did manage to spot Michelle Williams (not the cool one; the Destiny’s Child one) at Bora Aksu. And on the catwalk: lots of pink and black lace dresses and sequinned leggings. Twiggy and Kimberley Stewart were the front row VIPs at Sass and Bide, where chainmail and metallic embellishment adorned flowing cream frocks and short bodycon dresses. I’ll endeavour to squint harder tomorrow so as to bring you more detailed reports. Promise. LE
